Just look at that website and you will see how gorgeous Positano is. That camera is about three doors down from hotel California. You get the same view. Try to get rooms with balcony or terrace. We stayed in room 66. The hotel is close to the beach. Five or ten minute walk. Maria is very cordial and helpful. She will offer suggestions and she knows what she is talking about. She wants to make your stay a happy and memorable one. She will suggest that you take a private boat to Capri. It might cost a little more but DO IT!!! It is worth the small amount difference from taking a regular tour boat. It will take you around the island and stop in some of the grottoes. It doesn't stop in the overcrowded Blue Grotto because it would take a two hour wait to get in. The boat will let you off at the main pier and you can walk the island or as we did hike to the top where we had lunch at a restaurant called "Bar Jovis". Excellent. Maria will also suggest going up the hill for dinner. DO IT!! What a treat. A minivan will meet you at the hotel and take you way up the hillside to a restaurant where they have no limit of food that they give you. After dinner the minivan will also take you back down.

My wife and I had a fantastic three night stay here at the Auberge California in Positano. The views are spectacular and the hotel is in a great location -- high enough to have great views but an easy walk to the beach. Maria, John and family provided great, friendly service. There was a mixup with our room upon arrival but they graciously upgraded us to an upper floor room. Highlights are the location, service and value (130 euro per night, although we were near the end of the season). Continental breakfast on the deck overlooking the town each morning was a treat. Maria will arrange dinner reservations, a boat trip to Capri or a driver / car for those who want it. We made our own plans which also worked out very well.

I was in Positano in August 2000 with a friend.We stayed 3 nites at Albergo California and loved it.It was close to everything and so easy to find.Breakfast on the terrace was coffee,juice and pastries but a more substantial meal could be ordered.Our room was lovely with a small balcony overlooking the water and a beautiful view of the wonderful picturesque hillside that Positano is known for.As I understand it Hotel California was a home that has been turned into a hotel and it is very accomodating.The staff were great and very helpful but the proximity to everything and the view did it for me.

Maria and staff go out of their way to make your vacation a great experience. Although I prefer to stay in Sorrento as more night life, if you want Positano, you can not go wrong with this place for the money. We had the large room with fresco ceilings on top floor– beautiful room with a view. Would recommend rooms on second floor and specify want a sea view. No Internet access is only negative point. Breakfast is typical Italian food – great cappuccino – but you need to ask for this. Hotel located at top of town so a lot of walking which was not a problem for us. Steep stairs at front entrance so if you have a disability – may be difficult to maneuver.

The hotel is unbelievable!!! We checked in a were totally satisfied that it matched the advertising. If fact, the pictures on the website were of the room we were given. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The view from the balcony is spectacular! We could see the whole bay. The Hotel California is a short walk from the beach and easy to get to other parts of the town.

Probably the best part of the stay was Maria (the owner) and her great staff. They were helpful, professional, and friendly. Maria made everyone feel as though they were a member of her family! We asked for recommendations as to dining and sightseeing and she gave us great options. In fact, two of the restaurants she recommended, La Cambusa (near the beach) and a hotel high on the hill (can't remember the name) were among the best we found in all of Italy.

We will stay in the Hotel California again and will recommend it to all our friends.
